. joining me now is former press secretary for governor schwarzenegger and founding partner of the ginsberg mcclear group, aaron mcclear. glad to have you back on the show. >> thanks. melissa: the manhattan institute was talking about how for decades especially after world war ii from 1960 to 2010 the population of california increase creased by 137%. people were moving to california for the weather, promise, space industry or space on the ground. there were a lot of people coming out to california. since then we've seen. that was the stat we were showing. since 1990 the state has seen 3.4 million people do the exact opposite thing. and move away from the west coast. why do you think that is? >> well, we still have a lot of those reasons for people to come out here. it is the most gorgeous piece of real estate on the planet. absolutely beautiful out here. the weather is great. melissa: right. >> our ag system is wonderful. we have high-tech, biotech doing very well. there is a lot of positive things out here. melissa: but? >> the problem is the folks in charge are sew focused on environment

of the justices ruth bader ginsberg is 79 but she is in frail health. >> john: indeed. >> we do focus on the court for good reason around abortion rights, critical issues like that. but what this issue looks at is how this court has empowered the 1% at the expense of the 99%, that the powerful have their thumbs all over this court while the working people are getting the shaft from this court. >> john: absolutely. >> shielding financial institutions from accountability. and of course in the citizens united decision of 2010 it allowed the infusion of money into an all right polluted political system, which takes us back to our platform because so many issues we brought up, these are connected to the money in our politics. there's a reason we don't have some of these reforms or the reforms that president obama fought for. >> even though the public wants? >> exactly. >> the congress and the courts -- >> john: but it wasn't popular with joe lieberman, so we're not going to have it. >> right. >> the danger is the more and more that the scales are tipped towards the su

. so we have walt whitman, allen ginsberg. here they tried to be very clear that poetry has been an impressive part of america's history and that americans have been very committed to both writing and reading poetry. i think that continues today. >> what about religious books? >> we do have a holographic pile a lot of the books, while they would not necessarily be associated with the religion have the moralistic or kind of a do good tone to the. and we really felt that is more representative of america then would be a particular religious book. so we tried to look at the values of america, her spiritual sort of persona. rather than looking a particular religious books. >> roberta shaffer, headed to get your start? >> i started here over 30 years ago as the first special assistant to law library. fairly fresh out of law school. absolutely fell in love with the library of congress. thirty plus years ago as today you cannot keep me away. a room to work every morning, and i think that working here and being here surrounded by books, manuscripts, musical scores, movies, the whole gamb

published their first major books within weeks of each other. i follow that with allen ginsberg, james baldwin, christopher isherwood, tennessee williams was also working at this time too, this is like the first wave, and they caught a lot of grief for what they wrote. right after world war ii, homosexuality was illegal in all 48 states. you couldn't talk openly as a gay person. but you could write fiction about it and say i'm not writing about myself, i'm writing about these other people who are fictional. everybody saw through this white lie and understood what was going on. but they caught a little use from critics about it. the critics couldn't say, oh, you're clearly a homosexual, that would've been liable at this time. they found other ways to kind of complaint and attack and criticize. this first-generation caught a lot of great rema so how explicit are open could a james baldwin be or a christian be? >> they were initially very open. the second novel, giovanni's room, is about -- it's about two white men in paris, one of the great black american writers. before his second novel

ginsberg when she retires for example. you want to know if there's any practical experience, and the obama at the lustration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. present romney might decide he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. it does seem like that has a lot of salience and presidential debates. i.t. think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attacked as publicly since 1996 or before. it is remarkable. the republicans were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action given the polls. they do not do it anymore. john kerry said maybe it is time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down that road. that is all gone. this is why we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. part of it was there was an incredibly bitter campaign in california over proposition 29 which banned racial preferences in state programs in 1996. really bitter. i think it is fair to say there is an awful lot of demonizing going on against the supporters of propositio

place. you could see justice begins byrd, now that she is accomplished, she was -- ginsberg, now that she is accomplished, we may see her retire if obama wins. it makes a huge potential shift in the court based on the next president. you could have up to three additional nominees if something else happened and that would give a obama the opportunity to appoint the majority of the members of the supreme court, or it would give romney a chance to possibly shift the balance. anyone replacing justice kennedy will affect the balance, making it easier, assuming the president knows who to pick. >> you said retirements during this term. my prediction would be none. they all seem to be pretty healthy. >> in four years they could think it would be great to have somebody to replace me, but for years is a long time. i will worry about that later, i am having fun now. >> speaking of fun, we please join me in thanking our panel.
